“The MCCC RT program is recognized as one of the best in the state of Michigan and the United States," said Dr. Ijaz Ahmed, respiratory therapy program director. "We are a recipient of the Distinguished Credentialing Success Award from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care and 100 percent of our students have passed the CRT credential exam and 98% have passed the RRT exam in the past three years. We currently have articulation agreements with University of Michigan-Flint, Eastern Michigan University and University of Toledo that make transferring to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree quite easy. And we plan to secure even more articulation agreements in the near future."
